Firstly, thank you Layback Bear, I will definitely try those

Lava King, there has been no change in room temp here but I enclose a GPU temp reading from first boot-up, hope that helps.

Thank you to you both for your input and time.

Your GPU temp look very good and only 30% fan speed.

Compare that to the previously posted graph that shows 52C at 3% load. Fan speed at 30% and 1234 rpm. Something seems amiss to me.

I don't know about this specific graphics card, but some of them use only 2 wires for the cooling fan power, they don't have an actual speed monitor. My HD 4350 reported fan speeds even with the fan unplugged. Therefore, I tend to disregard the reported fan speed for any 2 wire fan.

GPU overtemp may not be the root cause of the problem but it certainly could be a contributing factor.

Graham, please continue to monitor your GPU temperature so that we can see if there is a relationship between it and your blank screen problem.

The issue happened again today but after an hour? I also noticed today that the monitor switched-off? I downloaded a monitor testing application but that seemed to run through OK.

UPDATE!!!

I have been trying another monitor for two days now and, touch wood the issue has not surfaced. If it is this, can anyone recommend a 24" monitor which would be used for general work and occasional gaming?

Many thanks as always.
